Pot makes you stupid.....I am old enough to see life time users...and none of them benefit from chronic use...I smoked the stuff for 25 years and now won't go near the garbage....Unless my judgement is impaired by alcohol and then I might take a puff...Studies have shown that in the stuff causes damage to the young developing brain- Pot heads now will be cleaning the toilets of young Asian math students once they go into the work force and establish themselves- Muslims don't smoke dope either...Dumb "it's natural" types will end up slaves to those with a sober and intact mind.

Nobody is suggesting that children smoke pot. Adults can choose what they want to do, smoke, drink and eat even if it's less than healthy for them. Now, go eat a twinkie or something while you still can.

Maybe we should just give up on legalization and enjoy our pot as it is..... plentiful, cheap, easy to find, good quality and NO government regulations.

Maybe the medical pot experiment has failed... and that's a good thing.

You just listed all the reasons I support decriminalization and not legalization.

I'm seriously considering joining you.

Meanwhile, we should encourage Jury Nullification to neuter these laws.

Then explain why smoking and alcohol are legal.

I thought that conservatives were for "small government" and "individual liberty", yet you have no problem with using government force to enact arbitrary restrictions on our rights.

You have the wrong dude. I totally oppose all government restrictions on lifestyle choices.

I'm not a conservative. I'm a Libertarian.
